the administration's narrative that benghazi was not a premeditated terrorist attacks is now fraying at the edges. a u.s. intelligence source telling me no firm conclusions have been reached. that the former guantanamo detainee, known extremist, whose operation is in eastern libya is under the microscope. there was no significant or sizable demonstration outside the consulate at 9:35 p.m. when the attack unfolded. in simple terms there was no demonstration that spun out of control with extremists hijacking the crowd and assaulting the consulate in two ways. a u.s. intelligence officials left the door to other al qaeda op atives. kudo seems to check all the books. was a member of lfig, the libyan group. this group trained fighters to afghanistan and iraq. and the lfig has been known to send fighters to syria. bill: they were blaming the film for a time and apparently that will go to the wayside. how does the administration explain the disconnect of the explanation anything? >> reporter: after the head of the counterterrorism center confirmed at the open hearing this was a terrorist attack the whit

correspondent arwa damon in benghazi. also joining us david ignatius, the columnist for "the washington post." david, let me start with you. you have some information, fascinating and intriguing information that the attack on the consulate may have been linked to al qaeda operatives in libya as a revenge plot. what exactly are you hearing? >> wolf, i heard from a source who has good sources on the ground in the libyan underground that the talk there was that the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed our ambassador stevens on september 11 last week was conceived as by the people who did it, an act of revenge to retaliate for the drone attack that killed a key al qaeda operative and planner. i ran that yesterday by a u.s. intelligence official who said that although some of the elements that i'd heard did not check out that they had heard the same thing. they'd heard this talk of revenge for the killing as a motive for the attack on the consulate in benghazi. so the u.s. government has been hearing the same thing that i picked up from my source. >> that would seem to suggest, david, i'm goi

on their compound in benghazi. while the investigation into the attack is far from over, the white house is now offering a new take on what really happened. here's abc's jake tapper. >> reporter: secretary of defense leon panetta acknowledged that the attack that killed four americans in benghazi, libya, on the anniversary of 9/11 was not only cared out by terrorists, it was premeditated. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. >> reporter: the white house first suggested that the benghazi attack was spontaneous. the result of that anti-muslim video inciting mobs throughout the region. >> jake let's be clear. these protests were in eereaction to a video that had spread to the region. we don't know -- we don't though otherwise. you know, we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> reporter: but source tell abc news that intelligence officials on the ground tell us the attack was not tied to the movie at all. what aroused their

africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. jenna: secretary of state hillary clinton now suggesting al qaeda was involved in the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. and as we told you moments ago we're now learning that u.s. intelligence has labeled this assault an act of terrorism and did so very early on. however the president has yet to publicly refer to it as a terror attack. something he is facing some criticism for. >> i'm sure there's some of that motivation to just keep everything as it is until after november 4th. but the thing really scary about it is, that the people in the region believe the united states is weak and withdrawing and you do that, you leave a power vacuum. jenna: joining us now, -- kt mcfarland, fox security analyst. you worked inside a variety of administration as part of the defense department. what do you think is going on here? >> initially, jenna, i thought, okay they don't want to be accused after mission accomplished moment. president said we won the war or terror. bin laden is dead and now he is campaigning. if it looks like there was terror
. sources are telling fox news they are convinced the attack in benghazi was directly tied to al qaeda and they believe a former detainee at the u.s. detention center in guantanamo bay may have led the assault. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge joins us live from washington of the catherine, we learning about the former detainee? what do we know now? >> reporter: good morning ub ba. according to the file sufyan qumu had direct ties going back to 1993 when he traveled to afghanistan and trained at bin laden's camp. in addition to the 20 year relationship with the al qaeda leader, qumu is tied to a. the assessment states, quote the libyan government considers the detainee a dangerous man who has no qualms about committing terrorist acts. fox news is also told that there are small scale camps run by extremists in libya, while not established training camps like we once saw in afghanistan prior to 9/11 the zones of activity we're told are around benghazi where the attack on the consulate be took place, darnah. and southwest libya. the u.s. intelligence community are watch
at the consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton was scheduled to testify to congress in a closed intelligence briefing today. it's been suggested the u.s. was warned about that attack in libya three days before it happened. the administration insists they haven't seen intelligence about "significant advanced planning" for that attack. but interestingly the white house is now calling the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack for the first time. and it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. fancy that. u.s. relations with israel at least on the surface appear to be getting much worse as president obama continues to say he doesn't have time to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran continues to march toward nuclear weapons. syria continues to murder its own people. it all suddenly feels much worse than it has for some time. here's the question, how satisfied are you with u.s. policy in the middle east? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile. post a comment. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> meanw
the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed including our ambassador to libya but when asked about the attack president obama wouldn't give a clear answer exactly what happened. as you by now know the obama administration insisted the deadly violence grew out of a spontaneous protest. for the first time yesterday white house press secretary said this. it is i think self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. our embassy was attacked violently and the result was four deaths of american officials. doug mckelway is live at white house now. doug, what is the latest from the white house there this morning? >> reporter: arthel, seemed after that statement that you just read from jay carney aboard air force one yesterday, after so many mixed signals from the white house and mixed messages from monday that would signal some kind of alignment in white house messaging. after the plane, air force one landed in miami for the univision forum yesterday, the president obama sent an entirely different signal. here's the president. >> what we've seen ove
this year. libya, where four americans were murdered at the consulate in benghazi last week gets a little over $13 million in financial assistance, and egypt where we saw people burning the american flag, they accept more than $1.5 billion from the united states, and the obama administration would like to keep that money flowing, sending secretary of state hillary clinton to make the case to congress today where the administration's getting more and more pushback on this issue. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane who's a former vice chief of stash for the army and a fox news military analyst. general, more and more we're hearing republican lawmakers, and we had senator rand paul last week saying it's time to put a stop to this. why would we be funneling billions of dollars worth of aid into countries where we are seeing scenes like this? what's your thought? >> well, listen, your viewers and anybody looking at those guys on the wall and burning the american flag would have an understandable reaction, and i can certainly understand the frustration on the part of congress,
.s. away chris stovens and three other americans in benghazi, libya. sources say u.s. intense knew in 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack with possible limps to al qaeda. addressing the nation after the morning after the deadly siege president obama said this. >> no act of terror will shake the resolve of this great nation. or change that change or eclipse the light of the values we stand for. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. >>shepard: an acknowledgment this was a terror attack? you decide. what we know is in the days that followed, the message from the administration was very clear. >> based on what we know, and now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of a pre-planned or premeditated attack. >> it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >>shepard: that was the ambassador to the united nations referring to an antiislam video that want viral. she said the same thing on all five sunday morning television shows. top administration officials now say what happened i
was there was no significant demonstration going on outside that consulate area in benghazi. so she is making it sound if the extremists who were heavily armed came in and joined a ongoing big demonstration that got whipped into a frenzy and led to this attack. >> right. well, obviously there's still a lot of facts to be learned. we don't know everything yet but there is one group of people who are not at all confused by what happened and those are the people who attacked consulate and killed four americans. they know what they planned and what they did. even worse than that, as tragic as this is, is the signal that it is sending to al qaeda and terrorists and extremists all around the region, which is, that we did not have adequate security for our ambassador to libya. we didn't have adequate security for our embassy in cairo on september the 11th. and that official americans and private americans are vulnerable. tunisia is a good example. when they couldn't really take over the embassy they storm ad school across the street. they couldn't get the hard target. so they went after a soft target. i thin
over the country. it all started earlier this weekend. eastern city of benghazi was the scene. people there rose up following that attack and the killing of the u.s. consulate in benghazi and a lot of other trouble associated with these groups but nothing is easy here in libya. late word from benghazi one of those targeted militias says they're not going to give up and they're doing their own arresting. meanwhile some new killing of ambassador stevens and three other americans in benghazi nearly two weeks ago. "new york times" saying something like a dozen cia -- were based at the consulate there doing important work, tracking militant extremist groups in the region. they also say that at least some fbi agents are on the ground in benghazi. we've got a couple of sources saying otherwise but all agree that the insecurity situation in this country is making detective work on this crime very difficult indeed. finally, patti ann, back to that new word about the last hours of ambassador stevens. the libyan government is now saying he was alive when libyan civilians found him inside that sm
indicating for the first time today that the attack on our consulate in libya two weeks ago in benghazi and the murder of our ambassador may have been a terrorist attack. secretary clinton admitted, quote, "terrorists seeking to extend their reach working with violent extremists as we saw in benghazi." joining me is the security animal -- animal cyst -- analyst who workedded for ford and reagan. before we go to al-qaeda, libya, and the statements by the administration, go to what's happening at the united nations. >> uh-huh. lou: the president declines any bilateral meeting with any world leader this week. he gives a speech. will be interesting to hear your take on. he moves off to campaign while morsi and ahmadinejad basically talk about embracing the world and creating a new architecture for world government. what do you make of that? >> that's scary, isn't it. the leader of the free world, who, a year ago, was talking about the world that he envisioned, the great democracy is now at the united nations cringing to talk about the murder of the american diplomats, that it's not our faul
is in benghazi. >> reporter: this is the first thing fahud says he saw and filmed at the consulate compound. the cafeteria building up in flames. it was shortly before midnight september 11th. the smoke so thick the compound's main house is barely visible. and then this. after breaking through window men shout they found a body. suddenly one of them cries out, he's alive, he's alive. the crowd cheers. god is great. rushing for a car, they realize it's a foreigner. i was filming the video and i thought it was an american, fahed recalls, but i thought it was a driver or security guy. i never thought it was the ambassador. it's clear from the rest of the video that the man they pulled out was ambassador christopher stevens. fahed says he was alive but barely. he had a pulse and his eyes were moving, fahed says. his mouth was black from all the smoke. ten minutes later rushed through the benghazi streets in a civilian's car, the ambassador arrived at the hospital. but it was too late. this doctor tells us he got a code blue call. patient arrested. needs resuscitation. he too did not realize it
